Bishopthorpe CC: Jeff Vangua: “It’s a Wonderful World”, Tuesday 15th February 2022, 7:30pm, via Zoom

We are delighted to be joined by Jeff Vanuga, an award-winning outdoor and adventure photographer from Wyoming. He has worked as a professional photographer for 40 years having taught himself the trade of photography as a way of capturing and sharing his creative vision with others.  He uses his unique artistic eye to breathe new life into themes and subject matter that might otherwise appear ‘ordinary’.  His ability to convey raw passion for the natural world has earned credits over the last 30 years in National Geographic Magazine, National Geographic Traveler, People Magazine, The Guardian, Outside, BBC Wildlife, National Wildlife, Audubon, Sierra Club, Time, Smithsonian, Wyoming Wildlife, Outside, The New York Times, Ford, Nissan, Patagonia and for thousands of other publications and advertising clients around the globe.

His work has received awards and recognition from the BBC, the National Wildlife Photographic Competition, the North American Nature Photography Competition, and Nature’s Best Photography Competition.  Recently his book entitled Fodor’s Compass Guide to Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks received a silver medal in the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill School of Journalism and Mass Communication from a field of 1,161 entries. One of Jeff’s ‘Winter in Yellowstone’ images was ranked in the National Geographic Daily Travel Photo as Best Travel Photo of 2015.  He has also hosted TV shows on nature photography for the Outdoor Life Channel and Nature’s Best Magazine.

Jeff leads tours for some of the largest photographic tour companies in the world, Joseph Van Os Photo Safaris. He has taught workshops for National Geographic Expeditions, Nature’s Best Magazine Photographic Tours, First Light Workshops, Moab Photography Symposium and other educational venues.  He sells his own stock and his work is represented by Nature Picture Library stock agencies.

Jeff is keen to share tips and tricks about any aspect of photography and his work and there will be plenty of scope for the audience to ask him questions.
